Son Heung-min saluted Tottenham's fighting spirit as they shrugged off Harry Kane's injury blow to beat Manchester City 1-0 in the first leg of their all-English Champions League quarterfinal on Tuesday.
Son was Tottenham's hero as he netted a cool winner late in the second half to give his side a slender advantage to protect in next week's second leg in Manchester.
Hugo Lloris also deserved plaudits for saving Sergio Aguero's first-half penalty, laying the foundations for Son's 78th-minute strike and inspiring the South Korean to hail their togetherness.
"Not just me but as a team, we never give up for 90 minutes. We fight," Son said.
"It was a very difficult game and in the end, we were more clinical than them."
Son had scored the first goal in Tottenham's new ground in their Premier League win over Crystal Palace last week. Six days later, he was once again the toast of the 62,062 crowd.
